Fall Applesauce

18 10 2010

The farmer’s markets and local farm stands in New England are overflowing with apples right now, so what better way to eat them, then applesauce?  This is a very easy, very basic recipe that is good hot or cold.

4 medium apples (whatever variety you love)
1 cup of water
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. ginger

Core and slice apples and combine in a dutch oven with the water, cinnamon, ginger, and brown sugar.  Cover and cook for around 15 min, careful not to burn.  Let the sauce cool, and then mash to your desired consistency.
